Searching for a Silver Lining By Miranda Dickenson


Matilda Bell is left heartbroken when she falls out with her beloved grandfather just before he dies. Haunted by regret, she makes a promise that will soon change everything . . .

My Thoughts:

This was a wonderful read. It reminded me of my close relationship that I have with my granddad. I love how each chapter is a song title it made it feel more personal and if you really want to immerse yourself you can play each song too which I did. This is a lovely story about second chances and I found it touching and funny in parts.

I won this book in a competition.

Have you ever given up on love?

When her boyfriend lets her down one time too many, Brooklyn bookstore owner Bea James makes a decision – never again! No more men, no more heartbreak, and no more pain.

Psychiatrist Jake Steinmann is making a new start too, leaving his broken marriage behind in San Francisco. From no on there’ll just be one love in his life: New York.

At a party Bea and Jake’s paths cross. United by being the only two singletons there, they make a pact: no more relationships….

But the city has other plans…

My Thoughts:

I loved this book, I have only ever read one of Miranda’s books before and quite liked it. I know it is predictable what is going to happen early on in this book but Miranda has written it well so that it didn’t really bother me.I think the main character Bea is lovely, i mean who wouldn’t fall for Jake he sounds utterly gorgeous and a decent kind of guy. I love the way Bea and her Gran write letters or emails to each other and that it is written in a different font, it somehow makes it extra special. Bit of a shame the plot was predictable but I totally loved it no matter. The cover is gorgeous too, it is a must if you like chick-lit.
